As one of the original Rhone rangers, Steve is one of the masters of Syrah, coaxing from it the full panoply of flavours without losing the subtlety that defines this variety. With the North Canyon, he conjures up the magic of mountainside wine. It will reward patient cellaring up to three decades but can be broached now with a rich roast.
